Boomkat Product Review:
After 10 years of impressive releases for Offshore, Good Looking and Covert Operations, ASC drops his new album on Instra:mental's excellent Nonplus Records. With 'Nothing Is Certain' he's created a defining moment for the Autonomic canon, focussed on glowing, far-eastern electro-referencing melodies and agile modern tech-step programming. 'Matter Of Time' sets his agenda with exceptional production values before swinging into the lush but fractured minimalism of 'Opus' and taking a moment for reflection on the beatless 'Conversations'. 'Microsia' and 'The Depths' are tricker half-timed beat experiments and there's even a stab at slow swung electro-house in 'Textura'. Back in 180bpm mode 'Losing You' and 'The Ubiquity Incident' shift back into steppers gear with impressively widescreen results. ASC is in sophisticated form and should be checked by any fans of DBridge, Instra:mental, Sabre etc. Recommended.
